How to smile with confidence

Do you yearn to smile, teeth and all, but feel too embarrassed? Sparkly, white teeth are a huge confidence boost and can make an amazing smile even more beautiful. So, in this blog, we will explore some of the best tips and tricks for achieving whiter teeth. Ting!

It’s all about the toothpaste

Sounds like common sense, we know, but the toothpaste you use really does make a difference. First things first, you should check the label and make sure it is fully supported by the British Dental Association in caring for your teeth and preventing cavities. Don’t scrimp and save when it comes to choosing the right toothpaste for you – there are lots of options available to choose from, including whitening toothpastes which can have a big impact.

Get into a good dental routine

Above all else, you need to practice good dental hygiene. A beautiful smile is not going to happen by magic and you’ll need to commit to performing the daily dental hygiene needed. Aim to brush your teeth at least twice a day – but don’t stop there – floss and use a good mouthwash. Don’t forget to visit your dentist regularly as well. Not only does it keep your teeth well cared for but it makes them look better, too.

Blue is best when it comes to lipstick shade

If you’re looking for a quick fix (although we really recommend doing the above two tips, above all else) then consider the shade of lipstick you are using as it can really make a difference in the colour that your teeth appear to be. Lipsticks with an orange base are bad news if you suffer from yellow teeth as they can make teeth appear to be even more yellow. But don’t worry, you can still wear your favourite red lipstick, just try and choose a blue-based red instead. Any lipstick that has a blue base will make your teeth look whiter.

Put down the red wine

So you want gorgeously white teeth? Unfortunately, you may need to limit some of your favourite food and drink which can lead to teeth staining. Coffee, tea, and cola should all be avoided. In addition, red wine (oh no!) is also a big no-no when it comes to white teeth. Sounds silly, but if you are going to have wine, try pairing it with some cheese. Cheese has been proven to help prevent stains so the red wine should not do as much damage when you have it with cheese. Pass me the cheeseboard now!
